STEAMPUNK!

Hi, Folks . . . have you gotten on board with the Steampunk genre?
I've been intrigued by it for awhile now and decided to step waaay out of my comfort zone to dabble a bit.  While browsing through the craft magazines at Barnes and Noble, I saw the cover of the Sept/Oct issue of Cloth*Paper*Scissors and had to take a closer look.  Doll artist Paula Nerhus has created some very cute, interesting steampunk art dolls and gives instructions on how to make them in this issue.  I have never worked with clay, so it became a big labor intensive project for me, but finally finished this dolly last night.  I already had paint, fabric and many doodads that qualified as steampunk accessories, so all I had to purchase was the paper clay and I was ready to go.  Now, if I intend to add dolls to my ever growing list of creative endeavors, I need to establish my own "look".  But Ms. Nerhus provided the inspiration to step away from what I'm comfortable with, so thanks, Paula.

  10. Sue Ann, I love this doll!!! It is wonderful. I love all othe "doodads" you have used. I am very intrigued by the steampunk genre, and I think I'd like to do something with it in my art, but it seems somehow out of reach...You have done a wonderful job with it as it seems to flow seamlessly from your wonderful classic and vintage style bears

  12. If you've recently spent time shopping for a plush toy or stuffed animal for that special someone in your life, you've undoubtedly come across hundreds and hundreds of plush teddy bears, jungle animals, cats, dogs and other cute and cuddly plush creatures. But what if you are tired of the same old stuffed bears and monkeys that you can find everywhere and that everyone already has? Well, if you're searching for something soft and plushy that is very different from your traditional stuffed animals, there are plenty of options out there for all ages. funny teddy bear names
